    Don't be so harsh, most of us started that way...the life style and age, just takes it's toll on us after a while. :)

    For the 90’s this was a very nice riding truck. It was also one of my favorite company jobs in my career. Sorry the picture quality is terrible but it’s a copy of a picture taken 30 years ago with a throw away camera IMG_9475.png

    Me<--1977 135/ 2007 240 / 2024 320(?) When I started OTR flatbed 2007/2008, I went from that 240 with a waist of 42, and then dropped to 38. Probably went below 200 at that time, but it didn't last long until it started climbing again. Went to van/intermodal for a year 2009(?) - 2010(?) and then some tanker(2010) and then back to flatbed, and also started being able to secure flatbed without running around, like a chicken with my head cut off...plus tarping smarter. When I find that picture of me in 1977, I'll post it.
    :(
